Volunteer Orientation @ NVPC (26 Apr 2007)

Hi folks,

its been a great evening for most of us at NVPC.

First of all, on behalf of De Long, Lawrence and Rimei. The 3 of us would like to give thanks to Bee Kim, Chan, Veron, Yue Ping, Stan, Jack and Yan Ting for taking time off in the evening to be @ NVPC distributing SILRA Home brochure, sharing with the attendees on their volunteering experience.

In addition, its heartwarming for Kenny (NVPC staff) to know that this Volunteer Orientation is useful as we have 3 volunteers (Bee Kim, Veron & Chan) who was "attracted" the last round in Nov came this evening to share their experiences. The 3 of you have brighten up his evening. =)

This feeling is more than words can described. Although we know we do not expect to volunteer for any rewards however, as a token of appreciation, SILRA Home Management will provide them movie tickets to watch Spiderman 3. (Limited tickets received in kind)

For those who are unable to make it tonight, we know that you have given us your moral support. We know you have, did gave us support right...yeah you did...
